I appreciate the feedback. (And it’s quite timely.)
in getting back to you.
You are definitely correct. I hadn’t digested the entire paper and was only focused on the North American west coast Boletus appendiculatus postings that were under the “Schaeffer” mantle.
The European Boletus appendiculatus is now Butyriboletus appendiculatus as you noted.
1. The subject line “Summary: Deprecated” (in my Comment created 2014-06-07 13:31:16 PDT (-0700)) is created automatically by MO when someone using the “Deprecate” link puts something in the Comments window to explain the action.
2. Is there a transitive, active, non-compound verb which professional mycologists use to cover of the following?
(a) the act of making a valid scientific name, which is the direct object of that verb, become no longer the preferred name of a taxon;
(b) the act of recognizing that an invalid, misspelled, or otherwise name, which is the direct object of that verb, is not the preferred name of a taxon.
3. If yes, what is that verb?
4. If no, what other transitive, active, non-compound verb do you suggest that the MO developers use as shorthand for those actions?
“Deprecated” is a term that you would not find in the Code of Nomenclature. You can deprecate typos (not very well, though), but to talk about basionyms as “deprecated” doesn’t make any sense. I am sounding like a broken record, but I wish that MO would be accepted by more professional mycologists, who – at this time – deprecate it.
What the article1 says (p. 466; my boldface) is:
Type: Butyriboletus appendiculatus (Schaeffer) D.Arora & J.L. Frank, comb. nov.
Etymology: butyrum (L.) = butter
= Boletus appendiculatus Schaeffer, Fung. Bavar. Palat. 2: tab. 130. 1763.
For Butyriboletus persolidus, it says (p. 471):
So my understanding is that Boletus appendiculatus Schaeffer gets transferred to Butyriboletus appendiculatus, while Boletus appendiculatus sensu Thiers becomes an legimately named, new species, Butyriboletus persolidus.
Did I get this wrong?
